Somehow no one feels very hard
toward the man who Is late to work
every day because he stopped to play
with the baby.
People are hard to please. It a man
gets mad easily he Is called "tcuchy,”
and If it takes a good deal to make
him mad he Is called “wooden.”
It Is shame when the baby wakes up
once in 'he night, and the father is
awake for ten minutes, that he should
lose “his whole night’s rest.” isn’t it,
now?—Atchison (Kan.) Globe.
The North Pole Itself Is not so cold
as a good deed forgotten.
The man who saves his religion for
Sunday Is like the man who saves his
money for his heirs.
Women like mystery. Hence the
fascination the average man has for
the average woman.

Ever}- desert has its oasis, and every
woman has her good points—even
when she disappoints.
In spite of Dr. Os.er, some men im
prove with age, and the glory of youth
is often merely a mirage.
All men are gamblers—even the
plodding farmer takes big chances
with nature and the seasons.
A girl is not necessarily happy
